I grew up here in Fort Collins. I love being a teacher at Putnam because we have such a wonderful community here. Our students are the best! I like seeing my student's faces light up when they complete a difficult task or learn something new. I enjoy watching students develop important skills both inside and outside of the classroom and make progress throughout the year. As a newer teacher, I am lucky to work at a school where the staff and students are patient and caring. Outside of work I like to run, play soccer, go backpacking, play with my puppy (Toby) and watch movies with my husband.
